    Summary

    "'Death did not hold the name then that he holds now.'"

    In Mip's most notorious life prison, Death appears in a strange disguise.

    It had seemed for a while that the plan would work: a bold conspiracy by a group of idealistic prisoners and sympathetic guards to stop abuse at Mercy Prison. Then betrayal occurs, and Tyrrell finds himself in a new life prison, with new rules to be learned. No longer is he in a position of leadership; now he is surrounded by men who question his most fundamental values.

    He has new allies as well: fellow prisoners who like what they see in him, a healer who refuses to accept current conditions, and guards who may or may not provide the help that the prisoners desperately need. But Hell's messenger, Death, visits Compassion Prison, keeping his face hidden until it is almost too late for Tyrrell to recognize his touch.

    Boilerplate warning for all my stories.

    Summary

    1815. Vagabond poet Keith returns to England to write and to live a little, as long as the money will last for him or longer. Meeting Mick Jagger, the bright but pampered elder son of a wealthy landowner, was not part of the plan.

A livelihood secured, there is nowhere for Keith to climb but up...and risk losing everything in the middle of a turbulent love affair that will give him inspiration to write some of his best-known works, a secret kept only alive on paper that charts the course of several lives but will go on to touch thousands of others.

    Summary

    Nile didn’t ask to be born that way, nor did he ask to be treated so poorly. Nevertheless, he still hoped for a life outside the confinements of the brothel, a life outside where he could live to the fullest, with the things he liked, with the person he loved, even if he had to fight the stigma of his existence to his last breath.

    Summary

    Long ago, Earth became too peaceful for the immaculate number of their mortal descendants. To correct this, the universe took to siphoning the population of the original Earth in half, scattering them into another world, and starting civilization all over with no way back home. Some more were routinely thrown in by mysterious circumstances; others were born into the alternate world. Magic embedded the very soul of those in this alternate world blessed the ground beneath their feet with resources. Many kingdoms were established and ruined over this simple but intangible thing that ruled their lives. Most have some virtue and vice, physical or not, controlling their very lives. Finally, The Jeons from Monneaux joined several together to form one peaceful empire and all was calm.

    Until it began to pose a danger again.

    Enter four college students from the original universe, simply spending a night as friends do, before answering the beckoning call of the Emperor.

    A doctor, a producer, a soldier, a scholar, a dancer, an actor, and a prince work together to bring peace to the world before it comes crashing down.

    Summary

    “Not yet. First, I need you to come with me.”

    “To come?” Tooru squints. The aftershock is still running through his system, his hands shaken, his legs barely keeping him on place. “To come where?”

    “To your deepest fantasies.”

    Tooru has no time to think, when Iwaizumi throws them both inside the rabbit hole.

    Summary

    The tenth and last Sense and Sensibility Destiel (Jane, I heard that sigh of relief!). 1873 is a year of beginnings: first kennel club, first Canadian Mounties, first American train robbery. But there is also an ending. Castiel and Dean are gone to that comfortable (and hopefully reinforced) mattress in the sky - but their legacy lives on.

    Summary

    PARIS, 1899. At the height of French Imperialism, a golden age of peace and prosperity has led to a flourishing of art and technology in the empire's capital. But beneath the beautiful facade of the Belle Époque, the world is brimming with tension, as the rising tides of nationalism and industrialization threaten to open a dangerous new chapter of history.

    Navigating this brave new world is Adrien Agreste, a promising young detective with more heart than sense. He's never particularly cared for politics or plotting, but he finds himself drawn ever-deeper into a dangerous web of deceit and betrayal as he investigates his most puzzling case yet: that of the mysterious thief known only as Ladybug...

    Summary

    “Do you accept whatever may happen tonight,” the boy asks, “And accept it of your own free will, and no blame to be laid at my door after?”

     

    The audience leans in, thrilled by the threat. Lance can sense it, without looking away from the boy’s eyes, can feel it shivering in the gooseflesh rising all along his own skin. The boy’s unwavering look stays on Lance - intent, implacable - until Lance nods the second time.

    “Then,” the boy says, louder again, voice a strike in the stillness, “We will begin.”

     

    In which Lance takes a girl to the circus, and loses himself instead. Inspired by The Greatest Showman, but doesn't require knowledge of the film (and is spoiler free).

    Summary

    Yes, after a prequel, base story and six sequels, here's yet another Sense and Sensibility Destiel (no Jane, I can't stop!). It is now 1861. This year sees the United Kingdom establishing a base at Lagos in Africa to stop Central African kingdoms from slave trading, the Kingdom of Italy being proclaimed in Rome, and an event in the United States that will one day be referred to by some very strange people indeed as 'the Recent Unpleasantness'. In the peaceful Culm Valley, Castiel and Dean are in their seventies now, and have settled into a calm, placid and refined old age.
    If you believed that last one, I have a bridge to sell you. For cash.

    Summary

    "They had to settle the issue of sex first."

    Sentenced to life in prison, Tyrrell didn't have many opportunities for bed-play . . . unless he could count what the guards did to him as "play." So his future seemed brighter when he was paired with a cell-mate he'd been eyeing for a long time with affection and lust.

    If only Tyrrell could keep from becoming his cell-mate's latest murder victim . . .
